Badfish: A Tribute To Sublime

Badfish: A Tribute To Sublime

The phenomenon known as Sublime, arguably the most energetic, original and uniquely eclectic band to emerge from any scene, anywhere, ended with the untimely death of lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Brad Nowell in May of 1996. But encompassing the sense of place and purpose long associated with Sublime’s music, Badfish, a Tribute to Sublime continues to channel the spirit of Sublime with a fury not felt for some time. What separates Badfish from other tribute bands is that they have replicated Sublime’s essence, developing a scene and dedicated following most commonly reserved for label-driven, mainstream acts. Badfish make their mark on the audience by playing with the spirit of Sublime. They perform not as Sublime would have, or did, but as Badfish does.

Universal Funk Order

What’s better than enjoying funky live music with friends the night before Thanksgiving? How about we make it free for all to attend? Sounds good to us!

Universal Funk Order is 100%, straight no chaser, hot, groovy, in your face, this-is-what-I'm-talking-about, all original, FUNK. The 7 piece band, hailing from Newark, Delaware, takes the perfect mix of sounds from all sides of the spectrum, twists it with originality and spunk, and personally delivers the product to you, the people. This is the fresh, revived sound of 21st century funk, folks.

The Snails

The Snails are an eclectic act whose work, though identifiable with definite genres, defies generalization. Having spent previous years exploring and writing in the style of mid-century Jamaican music (ska, rocksteady, reggae) the group now brings influences as various and distant from each other as American garage rock and rhythm ‘n’ blues to the forefront of their original sound. Their songs are lyrically poignant (“poetry dressed with tune”), their rhythms aggressive, and their performance electrifying. Catch the beat, and you’ll never be able to put it down.

The Snails are fronted by Todd Fausnacht on guitar and lead vocals, with Ben Parry on bass, Tim Hildebrand on guitar, Josh Parry on drums, and Matt MacLeod on organ.
